Lyrics

Punctured bicycle on a hillside desolate

Will Nature make a man of me yet? When in this charming car This charming man

Why pamper life's complexity When the leather runs smooth on the passenger seat?

I would go out tonight But I haven't got a stitch to wear This man said: "It's gruesome that someone so handsome should care"

A jumped-up pantry boy Who never knew his place He said - "Return the ring" He knows so much about these things He knows so much about these things

I would go out tonight But I haven't got a stitch to wear This man said: "It's gruesome that someone so handsome should care"

This charming man This charming man

A jumped-up pantry boy Who never knew his place He said - "Return the ring" He knows so much about these things He knows so much about these things He knows so much about these things
